Lance O. Leipold (born May 6, 1964) is an American football coach and former player. He is currently the head football coach at the University at Buffalo, following eight seasons at the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater (UWW).[1] During his tenure at UWW, the Wisconsin–Whitewater Warhawks won the NCAA Division III National Football Championship in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2014 and were runners-up in 2008. Their opponent in each of those title games was Mount Union.

Leipold reached 100 victories faster than any coach in National Collegiate Athletic Association history, doing so in his 106th game on October 18, 2014. This broke the previous mark of 108 games set by Gil Dobie in 1921.[2]

Leipold signed with the Bulls for the 2015 season, initially on a five-year contract. After a 5–7 record in his inaugural season in Buffalo, Leipold received an additional one-year extension that will keep him with the Bulls through 2020.[3]
